House of the Dead 1 and 2.

Silent Scope 1, 2, 3, 4.

I even brought the Xbox ports so I could practice, then go to the arcades and win on 2-3 credits.

HEN was the top of the House of the Dead 2 and Silent Scope 3 board for a long time, until the machines got updated.

There were two: A Jurassic Park: The Lost World shooter & an Aliens: Resurrection shooter. I don't think I played either more than twice, but those clips that played while they were idle were boss.

Three tokens? Dang, man, that's a ripoff. It's always been four to the dollar around here, and some places even give(gave? I haven't been to an arcade in forever) five to the dollar if you put in a big enough bill (like, four for a dollar, or 25 for 5.)

OT: Star Wars Trilogy Arcade. I only played it a couple of times thanks to the ridiculous price of a game (usually four tokens, and the thing was insanely hard), but man was it cool. Also, I think I could have funded an entire third world country for a month with all the quarters I stuffed into The Simpsons arcade game over the years. That thing ruled.

It blew my tiny mind when I found Gauntlet Legends on PS1. I played that to death on an arcade machine. House of the Dead and The Simpsons Arcade are the other two that spring to mind.

I used to play House of the Dead 1 on an arcade machine inside a very shady snooker club.

As this was the 90's, it was half filled with smoke - nice classic look though.

A little like this, but with more smoke.



He sat at the bar and drank and spoke to the owners before playing against other patrons. He usually won and they brought him a drink as reward. I was given a good Fiver or more to spend on the 2 "Arcade" machines in the dead corner. One was House of the Dead and the other was a damn fruit machine.

I know House of the Dead 1 inside out.
